Rumi

The act of trying to find the way home is what convinces us we are lost.

We are not lost, we are not alone, and we have never left home.


Never during its pilgrimage is the human spirit completely adrift and alone. From start to finish its nucleus is the Atman, the god-within... underlying its whirlpool of transient feelings, emotions, and delusions is the self-luminous, abiding point of the transpersonal god. As the sun lights the world even when cloud-covered, “the Immutable is never seen but is the Witness; it is never heard but is the Hearer; it is never thought but is the Thinker; it is never known but is the Knower. There is no other witness but This, no other knower but This.


—The Upanishads

Sometimes we get lost because we overthink things when it may be better to just go with our gut, especially if Atman is there.
Just watch and see.
